Cutie Pie Challenge - "Bunnies and Chicks"

Good Morning Crafters, we were asked by our DT Leader Christine if we would take part in The Cutie Pie Challenge by creating a card "Bunnies and Chicks" as I am on the Pink Gem Designs Design Team and of course this Challenge is being sponsored by Janet and we thought it was a very good idea and was happy to oblige.


And here is the Card I created for the Challenge


 This little lady is titled "Sending Bunny Hugs" and you will find her here. I used a Card design and created this decoupaged image for this Challenge, as you can see by how much it pops away from the card there are several layers to mould to give it depth.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Bunnies and Chicks Challenge".
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Good Morning Gemsters well this fortnights Challenge over on Pink Gem Challenges is "Ribbons and Lace" and we girls really love playing with these so I hope you like my card. Of course you want to know first who our sponsor is and that is Janet Roberts of Pink Gem Designs

and here is the card I created for this Challenge


This little lady is titled "Emma in a Hat" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used the Little B circle dies to cut her out and a fancy one for the background, I used a stamp from my stash and layered this up on a smaller circle die from the same die set.
The large mount I attached lace all around the edge then stuck my image on top. The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of mauve card, the papers are also from Pink Gem Designs and this set is called "Sugar Cane" and you will find them here, I used two of the papers and layered them as shown in the photo, then attached a ribbon around the middle across the two edges of the papers.
I then placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner, to finish of I have used several punches to cut out the flowers and moulded them afterwards I layered them up, and placed them on top of some punched out leaves in the bottom left hand corner. To finish of I used Nuvo drops in several of the corners.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pay a visit to Pink Gem Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Ribbons and Lace" Challenge.

On top of these papers I used a pale green card strip and used the same border punch from Martha Steward and laid it down the card about a 3rd of the way in, and for the last strip down the outer edge I used a dark green strip of card and a larger border leaf border punch also from Martha Steward.
I laid my mounted image towards the top of my card and the sentiment below it towards the right. To finish of I have used Nuvo drops down the right side in several colours.
